for signature and the united states signed the treaty on the very same day. ct dt is in the national security interest. as stated in the 2010 nuclear posture review, ratification of the ctbt is central to leading other states towards a world of the mesh reliance on nuclear weapons. reduced competition and eventual nuclear disarmament. since we have maintained a 20 year moratorium on an explosive nuclear testing, our policies and practices are consistent already with the central provisions of a comprehensive test ban treaty. the ratification would be a significant affirmation of the importance the united states attributes to the international non-proliferation regime. more importantly, the treaty enters into force u.s. ratification would concretely contribute to reducing the role of nuclear weapons and international security. for the global ban on the nuclear explosive tests the states interested in pursuing the nuclear weapons programs would have to either riss to torian weapons uncertain of their effectiveness or face international missions for conducting nuclear tests. the ctbt would subjec

.s. has an international cyber strategy that was put out a year and a half ago. that said that the united states recognizes the internet, i'm paraphrasing, the message recognizes the internet as a key national asset. the united states will take all efforts to protect it. including diplomatic, economic and military action. and i just don't see that happening right now. i don't see it happening. it might be happening behind the scenes. i don't see it happening and i think the public needs to see it happening because i can take the corporations in this country see it happening. and i've talked to ceos in this country who have said they are fed up with getting punched in the face over and over and over again and nobody is doing anything about it. so they want to take their own action. they want to take, step up and they want to take some type of action. i am not suggesting that independent company start to hacked back against other organizations. but i think there's a lot more that they can do two great hostile and firemen on their networks but there's a lot more that they can do to make it m
at the reaction around the world, you'll see that we have a lot of other nations in concert with the united states who also believe the unilateral imposition of that emissions trading scheme is inappropriate. finally, there appears to be some recognition on the european side of late that there are real consequences for doing this. we will continue to press for the appropriate avenues for the resolution of an issue like this. we are continuing to make it clear that we have serious concerns and do not believe it should be implemented, and i think the consequences of the european union moving ahead unilaterally are much butter under by the e.u. these days. >> thank you. >> mr. chairman, thank you. just a few comments, and i think it's worth noting, often times, we point out when there are mistakes made or cost overruns, but, you know, i just have to say that since i've been involved, i mentioned in my opening remarks that there was a time when the faa couldn't tell us in layman's terms what nextgen was. it was not until secretary lahood was appointed, and randy babbitt, the former administrator in o
of physicians and science nationally. we reck these nice that -- recognize that do not only 99% of women in the united states use birth control at some point if her life, it's also 98% ifective, and it's approved by the fda. so we recognize this as basic preventive birth control, and it's something that's absolutely important to access. what i would say is there are physicians among us who are more ideologically sound than following the science of their practice. i've met them, um, and i try to meet with them x. to your last question, focus on compromise. you know, science and ideology, science and religion will never come 100% together. we base everything on medical fact and on evidence-based medicine. first is a spirituality and ideology. it is my belief that there's room for compromise, that we can look toward improving health outcomes of communities like infant mortality rates. women, especially here in this county, we have a very large infant mortality rate issues, and one of the causes is sexually-transmitted infections. well, by stripping away 60 health centers that provoided test
and all of the folks that are here. as the director of nsa, general alexander also commander of the united states cyber command, says it takes a team to address the challenges and issues that the nation has in cybersecurity and no one individual, department or agency or the government itself can address those challenges. it takes a team that includes the private sector, the government industry, our allies and our citizens to all come together and address those challenges, so i think it's appropriate that we would and together here today to have a dialogue on a really important issue, which is the supply chain challenge gindin formation communication sector and this threat is then important and complex issue for which there is no simple solution. and it is going to take a team effort to address. i haven't had the invitation to come today. i started thinking what is it that i could actually contribute to the discussion with individuals across the sectors from being on the panel or from being in the audience here would be officially you to help this discussion. as i thought inspiration really
the united states was the only country on earth where we put our hands over our hearts when we say the national anthem. which was quickly disproved just by looking at youtube, people around the world going like this when they sang the national anthem. he dropped that the very next day. i don't think he ever said it again. >> he paid the price. >> maybe. >> i would say that's an example of actually changing behavior, which i think happens rarely in small increments. >> and i think the other thing, we're talking before the panel with brendan about this, i think the other thing we don't know was how many conversations are going on with campaign message people, with people making as, with speechwriters come as they are talking about wording? and how often are they sang well, if we say that the fact checkers will get us. now, i suspect that's happening a lot. but the only evidence i have had of it as a column written by connie schultz who is married to jerry brown, who said that conversation happened in the brown campaign. i suspect it is happening in many campaigns, and i think that th
with article 2 # of the constitution of the united states. the powers that derive from that, and there's a number of supreme court cases that follow that, but you begin with the president's responsibility that to keep the nation secure. >> does he run into, and does the administration run into a problem if you do this by fiat, you're accused of circumventing the legislative process, drawing analogies to executive authorities that was practiced in previous administrations. do you worry about that? >> well, i think, again, congress has had a full opportunity to act. that was and is the preference. any executive order cannot do all that legislation can do, and so we're still going to need congress to come back and to act, but in the meantime, there are things that the president can do under his existing authorities that are under consideration. >> should be noted that there are members of congress urging you to do this. >> they are on both sides, do it, don't do it, i think senator lieberman has advocated it be done because of the frustrations in getting the senate to act on it. >> you th
